by Anne Frank
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.24

5.0 out of 5 stars Good read, 22 Nov 2011
Very good read. Purchased for my niece to help her to appreciate some of the events during WWII. Simple language but powerful and thought provoking. I think they sometimes cover this in school.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent cake baking recipes, 9 Oct 2011
We have worked our way through this book and tried many of the recipes. They are easy to follow and the instructions are clear, resulting in some very successful cakes. The variety is also very good: From sticky to crumbly, from chocolate to fruit and nuts. Something for everyone. Every kitchen should have a copy!

3.0 out of 5 stars The Primal Wound, 6 Jan 2010
I have not read anything that explains the connection between mother and child in this precise manner before. It is quite profound that a child can sense 'something missing' even if they never knew their mother, even if separated as a baby. How much more desperate then is the loss a child feels, when they have known and lived with their mum and are then put into care? I read this book as a Foster Carer of 3 children who, in spite of all their mum has put them through, have a longing to be back with mum, even against all logic and the love that we show them. It also explains in some detail the loss of self that accompanies the status of being apart from their mum. It did not offer any workable solutions to address the resulting behaviours, except to recommend rebuilding the bond. Maybe this is addressed in follow up books?The Primal Wound: Understanding the adopted child
